I was visiting a another abandoned property today and found these in the trash.

The block plane is a old 120 that is missing some parts

I have no idea who made the combination squares.

The 12” combination square is identical to one I inherited from my father. Its a Universal 65 from the Lufkin Rule Co, Saginaw Mi.
